I run Vista Ultimate on one of my Computers (as dual boot) and after chopping out %10 and altering a good %20 of the OS it runs quite well and fast, one of the most annoying things the guys at MS Labs have come up with yet is Vistas UAC "User Account Control" (continues pop-ups asking in effect "do you know what your doing !), this is easy to turn off --- but Vista needs UAC because its learning, so do you have to put up with it ? --- NO ! >

Within Vista Ultimate there's a switch that can be set to automatically accept all UAC warnings, and using this switch rather than disabling UAC is a good thing because it leaves Vista security in place. The UAC pop-up isn't just a simple "Are You Sure?" warning. Responding to the pop-up actually elevates your permissions, if your user account is in the Administrator group and your permissions can be elevated.

How to >

Click Start and Control Panel. Switch to Classic View (if you haven't already) and click on the Administration Tools icon. In the list that opens click on Local Security Policy, and in the next window, Local Policies, In the Local Policies list click Security Options, and scroll down to "User Account Control: Behaviour" (the full title of the policy is "User Account Control: Behaviour of the elevation prompt for administrators in Admin Approval Mode" Double-click the title and in the dialogue box change its setting from "Prompt for Consent" to "Elevate without prompting." Click OK.

This tweak works in Vista Ultimate - suggested for advanced users
